Next Thanet Community Lotto draw on Sat 16 February at 8PM
The draw is in 0 day 6 hours 29 minutes!
The Hideaway Group provides a much loved and valued service for the community.
We are a local Community Group who have formed with the aim of renovating and restoring the area along with reinstating the lifeguards, installing benches, reopening the cafe, toilets and general aesthetic improvements. Some of these have already started or completed.
The beach and promenade are well used by local people including families, dog walkers and cyclists. It is a popular spot for fishing and watersports activities. The area is also used by various community fitness and art groups and local sea cadets for training. The coastline includes a conservation area which is popular with schools and community groups such as Cubs and Brownies for educational visits. Thanet Coast Protected Area run conservation courses due to the unique coastal habitat and ecosystem at The Western Undercliff.
The facilities upon which the local community relied were damaged by a flood approximately 4 years ago. Since then there have been no toilet or refreshment facilities available. By renovating the toilets and providing refreshments we intend to make the area more accessible for all local people and provide a community hub. This will encourage people to socialise and unite in the continued improvement and maintenance of this well-loved area. The toilets will be easily accessible for people with disabilities and will provide facilities for baby changing.
We would be looking at reinstating a lifeguard to the beach as at present there are no lifeguard services provided, this would provide safety and give peace of mind.
This is the only commercial business in this area and the local council have stated that there will be no further development permitted; therefore this is the only opportunity for these essential service to be restored.
We need your help so we can continue to offer and even expand our service!
Thank you for your support and good luck!
